Bodily Contortions and Mental Contortions

These are some pictures from an earlier epoch. I was then a master of Bodily Contortions, called Yoga.
Nowadays I mostly do Mental Contortions.

First, we must get a firmly grounded posture.

Moebius would have been proud of this

While the mathematicians can do all sorts of mental contortions, to do this in the Real Universe Right Here, is quite another matter...



Standing upright and stiff, like a flag in the storm, never waver nor shift...

Finally, we come to rest in the Eternal Nirvana

This is what the Buddha finally achieved, after so many contortions.
I have not only read the Eastern Mystical Literature, but I have TRIED IT OUT.
